2012 Back To School Guide - SugarBooger by o.r.e. Zippee! Back Pack/Lunch Sack {Review & Giveaway}

Featured Sponsor

For the past month or so, my kids (and I) have been on a quest for new backpacks and lunch boxes for the new school year. With little *e* beginning kindergarten this year, we wanted to find the perfect one to make her feel special. Thankfully, Sugarbooger by o.r.e. introduced the new Zippee! Back Pack and Lunch Sack, that we just fell in love with... 

About o.r.e.

Lisa Lowe started o.r.e. with a bold line of graphically innovative recycled-rubber bulletin boards that were designed, assembled, and shipped from her garage in Long Beach, California.

Fast forward nearly 20 years, o.r.e.'s focus of fun + functional has not changed and they have grown their brand collections above and beyond bulletin boards to include lots more items  for everyday living. Whether you’re a mom needing to be fashionably organized, a pet-owner looking for a better feeding solution, a college student in need of cool shower curtain to spruce up an apartment bathroom, or you’re just looking for a functional bag to take on vacation,  their hopes is that o.r.e. is an easy place for consumers to find all their products you have in mind – and then some. 

So what does "o.r.e." mean? It's simply their way of saying, "All Designs Are Original." 

About the Zippee! Back Pack

 ace and friends thoughts 

If you haven't noticed, I have a small obsession with Matryoshka Dolls (more commonly know as the Russian stacking dolls), so I was immediately drawn to this delightful print. As I perused the expansive collection on o.r.e.'s site, I immediately fell in love with the new Zippee! Back Packs and Lunch Sack

Based on the measurements, I felt this would be the perfect backpack and lunch tote for *e* to head off to kindergarten. When it arrived, I was even more impressed with the print, the style and durability of the bags. It's light enough for her to carry to and from school. 

The backpack's larger compartment will perfectly fit her new one inch binder, supplies, jacket (if necessary) and even her lunch sack if she would prefer not to carry it. The top handle is useful for hanging it on the hook at school or at home. 

The Lunch Sack is a great lunch box with a fun and unique pattern, that will be easily identifiable at school. The bag is waterproof and appears to be super easy to clean. It's not too big or too small and fits her lunch items perfectly! 

Little *e* adores her new Matryoshka Zippee! Backpack and Lunch Sack... beginning her first school year,  just right!
